Come into Brent G Hair & Spa to sign a Ferry Fare Petition

Disney 012We have petitions at the front desk ready for you to sign. We are located at Madrona Marketplace, 510 North Road.

The wording is as follows:

We, the undersigned, protest the user-pay approach that the BC Ferry Corporation uses to justify the continuing hike in ferry fares. Island communities are being discriminated against based solely on where we call home. Coastal island communities have contributed nearly 30 billion dollars in federal and provincial taxes since 2001 helping to maintain provincial transportation systems. We find it fundamentally unfair that we are asked to contribute to, for example, the Sea-to-Sky Highway and then be expected to shoulder the costs of our own transportation. With over 14 interior ferry routes operating without fares at all, we demand fair and equitable treatment.
